The proposed rail trail extends from the Galvin Middle School in Wakefield north to the Lynnfield/Peabody town Line, a distance of approximately 4.4 miles. The Lynnfield portion begins at the Wakefield town line in Reedy Meadow and follows the abandoned rail line to the Peabody city line, approximately 2½ miles.
